"I love raw desserts as they literally take 5 minutes to make and really kick those sweet cravings out of the park. Perfect for a last minute "i need something sweet" moment and great for the kiddies too. With names like "Froyo" and "ice cream", they will never know the difference!"

STRAWBERRY "FROYO" (serves 2-4)

INGREDIENTS:

1 punnet (pint) strawberries

1 tbsp coconut oil

2 big tbsp cashew butter

option to add a little honey but personally, i think the strawberries are sweet enough

  1. Throw the strawberries, cashew butter and coconut oil into a blender or food processor and mix until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a container and then the freezer for at least a couple of hours or until frozen.
  3. When ready, take the container out of the freezer and let sit in the fridge for a few hours to defrost or throw the frozen mix straight into the food processor again and blend until it becomes creamy.
